Highly Reliable Encapsulated DC-DC Converters for Harsh Environment Applications with 88% Efficiency
Press release date: January 22, 2014
These compact, 5-sided shielded, encapsulated converters, measuring 25.4 x 25.4 x 10.41 mm offer an industry standard footprint, incorporate the latest PWM technologies, automated assembly processes and synchronous rectification techniques to achieve one of the industry's highest energy efficiency ratings of 88%. A thermally conductive encapsulation material greatly improves the thermal performance in applications where there is little or no airflow, provides a stable platform for environments where dirt & dust, vibration or extreme temperature variations are likely to occur during normal operation.
The SPM15 & SPM25 series provides single output voltages of 3.3, 5 or 12 VDC. In addition, the SPM15 has a 15 VDC output option. The SPM15 is available with two wide input range options of 9 – 36 VDC or 18 – 75 VDC. The SPM25 accommodates an input range around a 48 VDC nominal from 36 – 75 VDC. The operating temperature range is from – 40 degrees C to + 85 degrees C, designed for use in the most demanding environments.
Protection features include over-current, over-temperature and under-voltage lockout. Basic insulation provides input to output isolation of 1,600 VDC.
The SPM15 and SPM25 series of encapsulated isolated DC-DC modules are ideal for use in high-reliability industrial process control, smart grid and transportation infrastructure equipment.
"We are excited to offer the SPM series of DC/DC converters to systems design engineers as it provides them a solution for the most demanding, high reliability applications." says Bill Smith, Director of Marketing, Board Mount Power, for Murata Power Solutions.
OEM pricing as low as $16.25. The lead-time is 12-14 weeks for production units. Samples of certain models are available from stock.
